Unfortunately, we witnessed Jerry's breakdown for almost 10 years as he got deeper and deeper into his addictions. jerry being "on" was compared to the recent years not to vintage performances of the 70's and early 80's. I forgot which book I read, maybe Parrishes, but the general gist was that the dead were getting worse and worse over the last 5years or so. It was a sad thing to experience for those of us who had witnessed Jerry at his best and during his demise

Jerry did have a few moments in the '90's. After the "burnout" in 1992, Jerry cleaned up for awhile in 1993 but it didn't last long. However, his JGB shows of 1993 are amongst my favorite shows to listen to.

After following the boys around for most of the eighties I hopped off the bus right before Brent died (the scene had changed too much for me and the band quit playing most good venues in northeast by this point.) I see from the archive I missed some decent shows when Bruce was sitting in but I'm really glad I missed the long fade that was the 90's.
I also have heard some tasty JGB shows from the nineties however.

I've been listening to 2-27-93 at the Warfield. The end of "Shining Star" where Jerry starts playing off of the singing crowd is truly magic. Jerry could just flat out connect intimately with everyone in the crowd.......what a gift.
